how to update run-time to version 2.2?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've installed vcvs2012_222.exe in win 8 dev environment as suggested by mf support to resolve an issue.

(1) How do i update the run-time? The current installation in our run-time environment was from cs2012_221.exe. If there's a 222 upgrade different from the vsvc upgrade above, please let me know where i can find this.

(2) Is the compatabilty add-pack now included in 2.2.2 i.e. do i need to install an add-pack upgrade separately in the dev and run-time environments?

Thank you,

Linden

Hi Linden,

Yes, there is always a companion COBOL Server version to any Visual COBOL upgrade. If you currently have a serial number for the COBOL Server product which is on maintenance then you should be able to download this from the Supportline Product Updates web site. If you are having trouble locating this then please open up a support incident with Customer Care and we will walk you through the process.

There is a Compatibility AddPack for 2.2.2 which will have to be installed over the base 2.2.2 install on both the VC and CS products.

This is also available from the Supportline Product Updates site under product name Visual COBOL Addpacks.

Thanks.
